      Pros

      Fast paced AGILE environment with learning potential

      Cons

      Pros

      Good management making a safe and respectable environment to work in with benefits and incentives for staff. I enjoyed my time here and would work here again.

      Cons

      The pay is lower than that of the same job in the private sector and some of the systems could do with a revamp, but otherwise these are only very minor issues.
